Five experiments using a visuospatial task were conducted to study memory accuracy and variability and to identify the origin of variations in steady states. This research was conducted from a dynamical perspective, that is, by analyzing the temporal course of discrepancies between the perceptual configuration and its memory (accuracy) and the temporal(More)
We recorded the paths of subjects who walked along a memorized hexagonal route without vision, and studied the impact of previous mental simulation of this activity on how well the path could be reproduced from memory. We compared two kinds of mental simulation to actual physical practice, rest, or simple memorization of the path. The results indicated that(More)

Two experiments dealing with the learning of a space by map or by navigation approached the questions of equivalency of the cognitive processes involved in spatial information and of response fluctuation. In the first experiment, 11 subjects were asked to situate, six times, 18 locations on a blank map. In the second experiment, the subjects were first(More)
Two experiments addressed the question of the spatial deficits of Parkinson disease (PD) patients, using a spatial location task which varied the characteristics of the task along an effortful continuum. In the more effortful task, 11 PD patients, 10 elderly control subjects, and 13 young control subjects were given 3 min to learn the layout of 12 places(More)
